My least favorite in the series by far. The Inn at World's End, where travelers from all kinds of planes end sit around drinking and telling stories while they wait out a freakish storm, is a neat idea. But the way the plot plays out is so tangential to the main Sandman story, with tangents going off the tangents. (Sort of like my life, true, but who needs it in fiction?) And the ending is just weird.

Chy I'm so scared to read Neil Gaiman. That is, Mirrormask is one of my favorite movies and when I see interviews of the guy, or stop by his blog, I really like him. And it'd break my heart if I read a novel of his and didn't like it.

Cathy Douglas Well, that's the most original reason for not reading an author I think I've ever heard!

We had his books sitting around the house for ages before I read any of them, because my husband was a big fan. Then we went together to hear him talk at the Wisconsin Book Festival, and I became a convert.
